From yesterday's BBC interview with Jawad Boulos, who is the lawyer for Tanzim leader Marwan Barghouti (on the program Hardtalk as paraphrased on Army Radio):.
Tim Sebastian: "Is Marwan Barghouti the leader of the Tanzim?"
Boulos: "Marwan is just a regular man on the street"
Ariel Sharon yesterday: "we are at the precipice of the beginning of continuation of the political process". Sounds a little better in Hebrew.

Israel is paying $150 million to Turkey as compensation for Israel's decision not to proceed with a plan to import Turkish fresh water. Apparently noone had properly evaluated how the water could be shipped, stored, and disposed of (report).
